Dems prefer Edwards to Coulter!

John Edwards might look good in front of a jury or on the cover of Men's Vogue but, whenever Edwards is contrasted with another politician, the public has quickly found the politician not named John Edwards more attractive.

For a man who seeks the presidency this is a very bitter pill to swallow. And who else has had the misfortune of having to, in his maiden run for national office, match up against such glowing towers of charisma as John Kerry and Dick Cheney? I'm sure Edwards is thinking, "if I could only catch a break."

Well, you make your own breaks in this world and Edwards, a bootstrap case he'll tell you himself, has grown tired of waiting for the political system to throw him a manageable foil, and has gone out and found one on his own.

OK, Ann Coulter isn't really a politician -- but she does write and talk about politics. And, I guess, Edwards didn't really find Ann Coulter -- she started it by calling him a faggot. But the point is Edwards is totally crushing Coulter in the Democratic primary.

So much more popular is Edwards than Coulter, among Democrats, that Edwards is able to fundraise by simply mentioning Coulter's name and implying the damage a Coulter presidency would have on the nation.

The Edwards campaign calls these spoils "Coulter cash." While this revenue flow might not carry the same value as the "Wall Street cash" or the "Hollywood cash" a Clinton or an Obama collects, Edwards is probably better off than the candidate forced to live off "Ingraham cash" or "Schlessinger cash."

Edwards's match up with Coulter has done so much more for him than just raise funds. It has also shown the nation that, as president, Edwards wouldn't back down from a mean person. In fact, President Edwards would go so far as to get his wife to call the mean person and ask said mean person if they would please refrain from being so mean. Kim Jong Il, watch out!

If Edwards is lucky -- and he certainly deserves a little luck -- Rush Limbaugh will continue the former North Carolina's Senator's momentum by calling him "sparkly" or "fruity" or "moist."
